I am thinking of my new book as a paperback

so I thought I should make a slip case to protect it.


back to YouTube.

The site I found suggested I would get better at this with practice.

Who knew?


So I had a practise with my little travel journals I made last year.

Worked out well.

I think cereal boxes are just the right weight.



So then I started on the main project.


I didn't have enough "seam allowance" in my cardboard

and it was way too thick.

Back to the Office Supplies shop.

Aren't they fun? So many distractions.


More graffiti to cover it and a good result in the end.

Slow stitch

I seem to have been doing so much s-l-o-w stitching lately
that I have very little to show.
I wanted to make a book for a special occasion
but I just couldn't remember wher to start.
Enter: YouTube.

The cover is a print of photos taken of graffiti round Fitzroy.
Very suitable don't you think?

Mostly quilting

I have been mostly working on my quilt

Hand quilting definitely can be described as Slow Stitch.

I love the feel of a hand quilting.




I have been for a drive in the country.

Dry, isn't it?


And a walk down some back lanes in South Melbourne.

I love this stonework: nice house blocks.
